The experience of these eur has shown that the shrub la a most persistent plnn.t. and that, to be effective, digging must be most thorough. Extensive Root System. The root system of the common barberry Is extensive. The roots of a bush four or five feet tall may penetrate the soil to a depth of three to five feet and spread laterally an equal distance. In larger bushes the root spread Is considerably greater. The root system of the plant varies some-whwith the kind of soil. In woodlands tohore a luyer of ' rich humus Mill caps a more compact and less rich stratum of still, the roots nre chiefly confined to the humus layer, but extend laterally considerable On the other hand, in a type rif soif which Is fairly unlfonn at Its various levels the root system Is more and frequently less A extensive In Its lateral spread. rather constant character of the barberry root system, however. Is the occurrence of at least a few r liiflve-l- y superficial lateral roots running a few Inches beneath the soil surface. This holds true even In those hushes which have deeply penetrating roots. It Is chiefly from such laterals that sprouts originate following digging. Hence, precautions need to be taken In digging to follow out along these surface' roots and to remove nil of them from the Renerve Fooi Material.
